Luol Deng will take pains to stay in lineup

“With Luol Deng aiming to return Sunday in Miami with a torn ligament in his left wrist, the question moves to whether the organization will let him. Such decisions are collaborative. The organization supported Deng when he made the decision to try to play through the injury rather than opt for surgery now. Thus, it stands to reason when Deng says he can tolerate the pain, he will play. “Basically, it’s week to week,” coach Tom Thibodeau said this week. “It’s going to be more of a pain tolerance issue. Obviously, we’re pleased he isn’t having surgery now. Hopefully, he can get back as quick as he can.””
